Pukekura Park New Plymouth Taranaki

Come with me on a ride through Pukekura Park New Plymouth Taranaki.  Then along the New Plymouth foreshore. Living with an attitude of gratitude is so important.  How could this not happen with the ride below!!I must be one of the luckiest guys in the world( even though I think that we create our own luck. )

Anyway I picked up my little JVC cam and took a shoot of my ride to work.  Then took a few other shots another day and editing them all together with some of the many photos of the park I had on my harddrive.

This contains a video montage of stills in the middle. Pukekura Park New Plymouth
